Who is an optometrist and what does he or she do?

Why do eyeglasses cost so much?

Eyeglasses are a complex optical device that is manufactured with high-precision equipment. Often expensive materials are used for the glasses. All of this explains why eyeglasses can be expensive.

What should you do before buying glasses?

Let's look at what to look for when buying eyeglasses. The first is, of course, quality. The second is the choice of lenses of glasses. Here we focus attention on the material: they can be either glass or plastic. The third is the choice of frames.

What's the difference between expensive glasses and cheap glasses for vision?

The quality and accordingly the price of the lens depends on the presence of coatings on the lenses. The higher the price, the more coatings on the lens. Coatings make our vision more comfortable. Lens manufacturers do not stand still and improve the quality of lenses.

How do I know which glasses fit my face?

It's best if the width of the frame is equal to or slightly larger than the widest part of your face. The upper line of the frames should coincide with the line of eyebrows. Smooth shapes of glasses will emphasize rounded curves of the face. To emphasize high cheekbones choose the "butterfly" or "cat-eye" glasses.

Where can I see better with glasses or contact lenses?

With lenses, you can see better, so it turns out that extra obstacles don't distort the image. Lenses don't shed dust, don't catch glare from the sun and don't distort peripheral vision-no matter where we look, the image stays sharp.

When I had private insurance I was with Dr. Duffy for a number of years. He was always extremely professional,kind and patient. Every interaction I had with him and his staff was so positive and pleasant. Great doctor!

Great experience! Dr. Nguyen is knowledgeable, thorough, and provides excellent communication about everything you'll need. I was also seen right on time and the staff is very pleasant. Would recommend to anyone in the area!

I had a great experience with caring workers. Thank you so much. I had a lense fitting for contacts and I have mild astigmatism (just about on the high side). Dr. W was great, knowledgeable and someone you can trust with your eyes. Thank you

I made an appointment unaware that the previous doctor left the practice. During my appointment i asked about not having my eyes dilated. I was promptly told about this cool new technology that would make it so I did not have to have my eyes dilated. They didn't bother to tell me, was that the technology came at an additional cost. At the end of my visit I was informed of the co-pay for it. In fact, overall I would say that the price I paid for an eye exam glasses and lenses even with insurance was obnoxiously high at this location. I will be fulfilling my order with them this year and looking for a new provider.
